Laughing Along With A Limerick

Here’s your Monday smile – it’s limerick time. Send in your own or here’s a prompt for you –


Here are a few limericks to make you smile this Monday. The prompt last week was FAME.

Keith Channing:

Some ministers may be quite lame,

But it isn’t just they who’re to blame.

Their confidence beaten

By four years in Eton,

They now craves their moment of fame.

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

Fame, I’m going to live forever

You should remember my name

I almost got a world record

In eating mince pies abroad

OK I guess that’s really lame!


The boy, he went out of his mind

Due to fame, of the infamous kind

Tiktok video went viral

Now he’s in denial

And all cos he didn’t want to get left behind.

Paul Mastaglio:

If you found fame

Nothing would be the same

You might get a big heed

Certain friends you wouldn’t need

You might even change your name!

Kim Smyth:

There once was a woman of fame

Who walked with a limp; kinda lame

She went to the doc

And for a pretty buck

He repaired it and now she’s the same!

Sarian Lady:

There once was a man who did claim,

That he’d reached heights of fortune and fame.

He wasn’t on T.V. or Radio.

Silver Screen was just a no, go.

Turned out he’s a pantomine Dame.

Linking People 2003:

Writing is one of the easiest ways to fame.

But, it’s not so easy game,

Without learning and perfecting the art.

Have to be smart.

So, pen down something today to aim.

Sharon Tingle:

Modelling was his chance to fame

Been at it like a moth to a flame.

Spent a fortune for his debut

But on D-day his dream feel through;

The mother of all zits sabotaged his acclaim!

Jael Stevens:

Do you suppose I seek Janus-faced fame

Bright-lights-and-banners’ mercurial acclaim

No, I don’t need the wow-crowds pressure

Why strive for unsteady gig, a soul-thresher…

In Lamb’s Book of Life, God already penned my name.

  1. It’s hard to explain how I feel
    About cooking a high-protein meal.
    I don’t enjoy turkey
    And I cant stand beef jerky
    So I guess it’ll have to be veal.

  2. I went for a meal that was thai
    A delicious and hot stir fry
    With king prawns and mussels
    In all kinds of vessels
    Enjoyed that great food, did I.

    There once was a boy named Brad
    Who did things very very bad
    He’d lie cheat and steal
    To get a free meal
    But he was rich, which is so sad

    Nothing could be finer
    When going to the diner
    Taking out a meal
    Might offer some appeal
    Nothing could be kinder.

    Cheers Paul 😁

    A young lad who came from Deal
    Took his beloved out for a meal
    A three-course dinner
    He was onto a winner
    Until she told him to get real

    GLASS of water before a meal,
    Better digestion it will reveal.
    Longer gap between dinner and breakfast encourages autophagy,
    It can be slowing aging process strategy.
    But, most importantly live with smile and zeal!

    This is a perfect prompt word! I’ve had a humorous “pandemic/sheltering at home eating schedule” in mind…I just have to see if I can work it into a more or less proper Limerick form 🙂

    Oh gosh, I just saw the McDonald’s “funny”–so true, no age limit on a “happy” meal, haha! MORE FRIES, Please!

    When I eat a big meal,
    I’ll tell how I feel,
    All bloated and sleepy.
    Is that a bit freaky?
    But it has a strong appeal.

  10. Sharon Tingle says:

    I wish I had the skill
    To make each meal a single pill
    No more cooking ever
    Just to pop a meal; how clever!
    Super slim me I ‘d be just eating my fill.
